Hey...it must be Spring...right!?

'cause...
I just painted my first piece of furniture outside...WOOHOO!!!
Brought this sweet cupboard home from sisters' last week
and didn't think the weather was gonna cooperate at all,
but at last, the sun...forgot to take a pic
before I started painting it, but you can get the idea of the salmon
paint with lil' mallard decals on all the doors...NOT!!!

It's kinda hard to tell, cause THE SUN IS SHINING SO BRIGHT!!!
But I put a white-wash over the top of the French grey paint...
then sanded it watching not to uncover too much of the salmon.
But let me tell ya, don't be fooled by the sun, it was colder
than a witch's ___well, you know the story...brrrr...
but us hard-core painter/junkers work 24/7
rain or shine.

Cute lil' doors huh, they just don't make 'um like that anymore...

How 'bout that for a grand finale...SWEET!!!
Love the old red interior...AND...
I have the best smelling soap to display on the inside...
'Spanish Moss' in a pale grey color!
You're gonna love this display, so come check it out at Sisters',
it'll be on display tomorrow afternoon...
wonder what I'll drag home next...heehee...!
